argument. i don't remember jim demint saying when george w. bush was proposing to reform social security a few years ago that somehow he was putting the troops at risk in iraq because he was worried about some domestic issue. look, the republicans at this point are basically irrelevant in the process. i know that sounds like a harsh and definitive thing to say, but they've taken a hard right off the main highway of american politics, and the democrats don't need their votes. and whatever noise they make is ambient noise. it's not really relevant to how any of this shakes out. >> you have bizarre behavior that there may not be any memory of later, and demint is a great example of this. there's a harvard study that's come out that says 45,000 americans each year are dying because they don't have health insurance. that's one every 12 minutes, five per hour. does that not qualify, even giving demint the idea that this is a legitimate argument and not another strawman, but doesn't that sound like a stunning casualty list to compete with the worst conflict imaginable? why does jim demint hate

. part of that is because he is getting pushback from a lot of democrats. in terms of what jim demint was saying, i don't think the reason we had the wall street crisis was because of the tax system. there was not enough financial regulations not just with wall street firms but fannie and freddie may. it is unclear whether the president really wants to fix that. >> what got us us away from the brink, we're not out of the woods, but we're off the precipice was the substitution of u.s. government debt for private debt which was lousy. that is essentially the whole story r in the end, people believed in the dollar and in the u.s. government's faith in credit and as it was substituted for bad debt, it stabilized the system. even though the government is beginning to wind down. even though credit is blowing a flowing and in part, the government is withdrawing the exquisite guarantees to the money market funs is going to expire. those are recollection police its guarantees. the p problem is that everybody interests are that the implicit guarantees are still in place. nobody will say it but

of this conversation got started when jim demint said this would be barack obama's waterloo and it would destroy him. you had seen republicans, this has been their rallying cry and i don't think the bulk of the gop wants reform. i think they've been about making steer heroes of people that show up with guns to presidential rallies. they've been about lauding people who make up blatant lies and distortions about this package. we're not having a conversation about the package on the table. we're having conversations about pills and scandals. this is not moving the ball forward. >> i think a guy like bob dole, who appears to be calling for a type of reform. some american colleagues who might be seduced by the kennedy stuff and want to move for a reform package, what you have to understand is this. what obama wants to do is weaken the health care system. once it starts falling apart, he wants to bring in the federal government for a complete takeover. say you do a partial thing where you require insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions. that would drive the smaller companies out. drive price

back. guest: senator jim demint of south carolina had a proposal a few years ago to take the money that was ostensibly there in the trust fund, and give it to people as individual accounts to supplement their social security. they would own that account. if you die, you cannot give your social to security benefits to anybody. so you would have this social security, your own individual account, and you could draw on that, but it would be your ownership. unfortunately, the senate turned that down under president bush. in the end, we have to look at different plants. 30 nations around the world have gone to private plan to supplement their accounts. the stock market has had its ups and downs, but over time it grows 5%, 7% a year almost without fail. we may have to look at something like that to supplement social security because otherwise people will continue to be squeezed and seniors cannot live on the benefits that government provides them. host: you have written about the community organization group acorn. the senate move to block giving grants to acorn. tell us about your take a
